Episode #11: The Martyrdom of John of Nepomuk

His historical name was Jan Velflín from Pomuku. Most know him as Saint Jan of Nepomuk, the martyred archbishop that was thrown to his death over Prague's Charles Bridge in 1393. We will examine this 14th century Czech martyr and the various legends attributed to the motivations of his murder. Was he murdered because he was protecting the sanctity of the confessional or was he marked for death because he backed the wrong Pope? We will examine the many angles of this story on this edition of the Bohemican Podcast.
